The Baltimore Orioles have acquired infielder Omar Quintanilla from the New York Mets for future considerations, reports Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com:

The Mets designated Quintanilla for assignment earlier this week to make room on their roster for outfielder Jason Bay, who was activated from the disabled list.

The 30-year-old appeared in 29 games for the Mets this season, hitting at a clip of .257/.350/.371 with five doubles, one home run and four RBIs over 70 at-bats. During his time in New York, Quintanilla manned second base and shortstop.

Quintanilla spent five seasons with the Colorado Rockies from 2005-2009, posting an OPS of only .567 over 500 at-bats. He appeared in 11 games for the Rangers last season.

The Orioles developed a need for additional middle-infield depth recently with injuries to second baseman Brian Roberts and utility infielder Robert Andino.
